Compagnie Bam will be performing at the Hippodrome on Friday 7th September, 2012, at 7.30pm. Tickets £10, £8 concessions, from the Hippodrome booking office directly, or on 01493 844172 or www.hippodromecircus.co.uk.
Compagnie Bam is based in Amiens and is one of France’s most exciting young circus companies. The company has been invited to perform ‘Switch’ at the Hippodrome as part of the Out There Festival 2012. ‘Switch’ fuses elements of traditional and contemporary circus with a rock ‘n’ roll attitude. Breathtaking acrobatics are performed on a teeterboard and Chinese pole in a fast paced show packed with humour, driving rhythms, music and singing. This is promised to be a ‘jaw dropping’ show.

This year’s Out There was better than ever. The weather was fine the whole weekend, which must have helped to encourage the huge crowds that attended all events. It’s a great privilege to be able to welcome so many international artists and organisations to Great Yarmouth, with their skills, their great energy the many varieties of humour.
Photographs of Waterlitz by Diane Marks
Waterlitz, presented by the French organisation Generik Vapeur, was spectacular: the huge edifice of containers installed in St. Nicholas car park stood high in the night sky like a giant robotand was lit up with brilliant projections, contraptions, stage scenes as the container walls opened, fireworks and aerial ballet. It was ambitious and enormously entertaining.
Close Act: Insects XL
There was something for everybody at St. George’s Park over the weekend: giant insects walked around the site to the delight of children, and as well as the wonderfully anarchic street theatre and amazing acrobatics all performed with humour that we have come to associate with street festivals, there were acts like Rue Taquin, also from France, bringing tango to the street in the form of a couple bicker and tease each other at their flower stall through their passionate dance routine.
Les P’tits Bras from Belgium performed a particularly enchanting act, delivering their acrobatics on a 1930′s structure with an old-fashioned, Charlie Chaplin-like humour. There is something specially enjoyable about watching these acts out in the open, not glamourised or distanced by artificial lighting.
The Wheel of Death, Time’s Trilogy, performed by Les Studios de Cirque (France).
Amongst all the great acts, Pete Sweet from USA could also be mentioned for his clever and clowning show as an engaging “nerd”, ending after much tom foolery with an impressive piece of rope-walking – or dancing, in fact. Let’s hope SeaChange can get the funding to keep this annual festival going.

Plans are now underway for next year’s Out There International Festival of Street Arts and Circus, which will be happening in Great Yarmouth on the 8 and 9 September 2012 – a week earlier than usual. This is because the Out There Festival and specifically a new performance by Generik Vapeur (from the blue men and Bivouac fame!) will be part of the official 2012 Olympic events calendar. Joe Mackintosh, Chief Executive from SeaChange Arts says “Being part of the 2012 Olympic events is a great honor for the Out There Festival and will really help raise the profile of this local event and put Great Yarmouth firmly on the map as a cultural destination”.
Generik Vapeur’s new show – “Waterlitz” is commissioned through the ZEPA partnership, which partners organizers SeaChange Arts with eight major street arts festivals and producers in France and the UK. ZEPA is supported by the European cross border cooperation programme Interreg IVA France (Channel) England. This exciting new show will combine the highest quality street theatre with explosive pyrotechnics and breath-taking aerial stunts, Waterlitz is a mobile performance designed to astound the audience with spectacle whilst also challenging them to consider some of the biggest issues affecting the world today. Seachange Arts are currently identifying acts, performers and companies for the 2012 festival and also busily fund raising and seeking sponsorship for the 2012 festival from local businesses and partners.
SeaChange Arts wanted to express our sincere thanks to the public for all the donations made to the festival this year through donation buckets, barrels and the sale of specially designed Out There T-shirts. We raised in total £2,991.55 which will help contribute to programming of acts and performers next year. 2012 Out There should prove to be the biggest festival yet including the use of new indoor spaces for programming such as the newly renovated St George’s Theatre. Please look out on the Seachange Arts website (www.seachangearts.org.uk) for further upcoming details.

Call for local interviewees!
Local arts and regeneration organisation SeaChange Arts are currently looking for local people who would like to share their memories and stories about King Street in Great Yarmouth, as part of the Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) scheme. The THI scheme is a conservation led regeneration project for the St Georges and King Street area of Great Yarmouth, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and managed by Great Yarmouth Borough Council’s Conservation Department.
The audio interviews, as well as being placed in the Norfolk Record Office audio permanent archive, will be used as part of a film looking at the history of King Street through the recollections of people of Great Yarmouth. Lynsey Allett, filmmaker and oral historian working on the projects says: “We are looking to create a vivid and varied audio documentary, which captures the lively and interesting atmosphere of King Street over the last decades. These could be recollections about the houses, people or shops on the street, or events that have taken place on King Street over the years. To make this piece successful, we’d really love to hear about as many people’s memories as possible.”
The interviews will take place on Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th September at Maritime House in Great Yarmouth, or at a more convenient place for the interviewee. Local people will be interviewed by Lynsey Allett and her assistant.
If you would like to share your memories of King Street in Great Yarmouth, please contact Lynsey Alett on email@example.com, or call Becca Clayton at SeaChange Arts on 01493 846550

We have put the finishing touches to the line-up for the 4th edition of the Out There International Festival of Street Arts and Circus, and with acts coming from over 10 different countries this year’s event promises to be bigger than ever!
Come along to St George’s Park in Great Yarmouth on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September to see some astounding performances from some world-class acts, including a hilarious acrobatic duo from Sweden, a trampolining acrobatic troupe from Belgium and a jet-propelled thrill seeker from Austria!
This year’s event will see the triumphant return of French company ‘Les Trois Points De Suspension,’ who proved to be a smash hit at Out There in 2009. The company will be bringing their bouncy stilts show ‘Mr. Baryton’ to perform alongside shows by some brilliant performers from much closer to home.
Another act sure to get Great Yarmouth talking is the phenomenal ‘Mario, Queen Of The Circus.’ Fresh from a 4 year world tour, Mario comes briming with unbridled passion. An expert in both circus artistry and comedy, his unique mix of complex juggling tricks and universal sex appeal can only find release in the arena-rocking anthems of his favourite supergroup – Queen!
The Saturday programme will finish with a Seafront Spectacular on Great Yarmouth promenade, featuring acts from France, Ireland, The Netherland and the UK. Traditional Breton Dance Champions ‘Eostiged Ar Stangala’ will be inviting members of the public to join them in a 45 minute music and dance celebration, before the UK’s leading contemporary circus company ‘NoFit State Circus’ perform their spectacular new open-air show to finish the day in breathtaking style!
‘Barricade’ from the new show being performed by No Fit State Circus.
On Sunday 18th September Out There will return to St George’s Park for another day of fantastic entertainment. Shows will include an extra special one-off performance from The Rubberband Boy, plus some talented local young people will be taking to the stage alongside artists from NoFit State Circus, Hocus Pocus Theatre Company and local artist Hayley Bird to show off their circus skills in a brand new performance piece created especially for the festival!
Make sure you check out www.outtherefestival.com next week to see the brand new festival website and the full programme!
